More About This Recipe
Tiramisu was the first dessert I ever got at a restaurant. I was on one of the first dates with my college sweetheart and she asked to see the dessert menu. It was kind of odd to me because I had never done that before, and also because I had just eaten a crazy amount of cannelloni and couldn’t imagine eating anything else.
She wanted the tiramisu and said we would split it. I of course obliged, having heard of the dessert, but not knowing what it was.
I was in for a big surprise when the dessert came out – I had no idea I would enjoy it so much! Instead of following my original plan of having a bite and then letting her eat the rest, I dove right in, possibly eating more than my share. I don’t think she minded though.
One bite of this Tiramisu Ice Cream Cake reminded me of that night. I don’t eat tiramisu very often, and it can sometimes feel out of food fashion, but the flavors are classic for a reason.
I initially planned on making Mascarpone ice cream for this dessert, but in the end decided against it and instead tossed some vanilla ice cream into a food processor with the Mascarpone. It worked great!
Plate and garnish. Yum!
